survival is a state of mind.


A emergency could possibly happen to anyone, anywhere. When confronted with an unexpected survival situation man has the potential to overcome many challenges, & and come out a survivor. But just what is survival anyway? Survival is the art of surviving beyond any event. To survive means to remain alive; to live. Survival is taking any given circumstance, accepting it, and trying to improve it, while sustaining your life until you can get out of the situation. And most importantly, survival is a state of mind.

Survival depends a great deal on a person's ability to withstand stress in emergency situations. Your brain is without doubt your best survival tool. It is your most valuable asset in a survival situation. It isn't always the physically strong who are the most effective or better at handling fear in emergency situations. Survival more often depends on the individual's reactions to stress than upon the danger, terrain, or nature of the emergency. Mental skills are much more important than physical skills in survival situations. A person's psychological reactions to the stress of survival can often make them unable to utilize their available resources. You most likely won't use your physical skills if you don't have a positive mental attitude.

One definitely must be in the proper frame of mind to survive an unplanned survival situation. With the proper attitude almost anything is possible. Without the will to live survival is impossible. Survival is possible in most situations but it demands a lot of a person. If you think that you can't survive, then you won't try to survive.

A positive attitude has a very strong influence on the mentality and motivation necessary for setting a goal to live. Set goals give motivation and attitude necessary to survive pressures. When placed in an unexpected survival situation you will be forced to rely upon your own resources; improvising needs and solving problems for yourself. If you want to survive then you must ultimately decide to take care of yourself and to not count on others to help you.

It's Showtime

Well Hurricane season is here.Most preps should be in place- Water, Food ,Flashlights etc.
The people who wait till the last minute are going to be in a world of hurt if a storm is headed this way & they are short of supplies.As it looks right now the stores don't have enough stock on hand for a emergency so if tshtf they will be sold out quickly.Then what?
Just because you have cash doesn't mean squat if there isn't anything to by. And that brings me to my next point, what route are you gonna take out of town if you decide to leave? The State has made changes to the contraflow plan so get a map.I saw that Home-Depot was giving them out free as well as many of the TV stations & various businesses. For sure if you get hung up in the wrong place on the way out you will be screwed & might be trying to hitch a ride.Plan more than 1 route out of the area, as the roads get clogged up quick.
They always have thousands of people suffering when a evacuation is called. I will be going over the preps again in detail in the next few post but first you have to have your mind right. Surviving is a mindset & if you don't have it, all the money in the bank ain't gonna help ya. That's all for now..................GET PREPPING
